Yeah, there don't seem to be any good .mod trackers for Linux. I'm getting a little sick of loading up ModPlug in WINE all the time, so... I would like to go about writing my own. The only problem is, the documentation of the .mod format is so poorly written, I might as well go in and crack it myself. How would this be done?

Yeah, I currently don't have the programming experience, but we'll worry about that later.

Have you tried MilkyTracker?

It can play .mods.

I personally don't have that much experience in it (as far as creating music goes).

Wait - MilkyTracker does .mods? I thought it only did .xm. Either way, though, the main thing is can it EDIT a .mod? Although I'd kinda like to make my own if only because while complicated, it would certainly have an interface I'd like (I never was a big fan of the Milky Tracker intetrface).
